Boats at Flamborough North Landing

I visited the Yorkshire coast a few weeks ago, visiting Flamborough – specifically North Landing and then a walk along the clifftop path to Flamborough Head, where the lighthouse resides.

The two pictures in today’s post are from North Landing. This used to be the launch point for the Flamborough lifeboat and the steep concrete launch slide is a major feature of the walk down to the sand (it is just to the right of the decaying boat in the first photo). The lifeboat has now moved to South Landing and the ramp and boathouse are no longer in use – for their original purposes at least – although the boathouse now serves as a cafe and grille.

The walk down to the beach is quite steep and the sand is very soft, making progress across it away from the firmer ground of the water line quite an energy intensive process. The walk back to the top is pretty good exercise for thigh and calf too!

I’ll be posting a series of shots from this trip over the coming week or so.

This was the first roll of film that I converted with Negative Lab Pro and I’m pretty happy with the results.

  1. I was looking through your pictures from the coast, on Flickr. Boy, you got some great shots! I really like the one with the dog waking up the lane past the snack house.

    1. Thanks. I was blessed with nice light on the day, which always helps. Plus a change of location to stir the creative juices. Glad you like them – I was feeling enthused on the day and hope it comes through in the photos. Still got quite a few more to come!
